New Jersey Federal District Court Judge Holds Discovery Sanctions Hearing in International Case
In a complex international business litigation case, the opposing party repeatedly made misrepresentations to the court and obstructed discovery orders to avoid producing evidence in the United States and in India.
Our Business Litigation team persuaded the court of the offending party’s personal involvement in the obstruction. The court agreed to hold an unusual integrity hearing that compelled the party and attorneys to give testimony before the court subject to cross-examination. This was only the second time the Federal District Court in New Jersey held an integrity hearing.
